I love Chris and his website morelmushroomhunting.com .  i Have learned so much from Chris and he always is there to help with mushroom identifying on a personal level! I use to only hunt Hen of the woods, now I'm out after every rain in the spring, summer and fall and love the hobby and venture and thanks to Chris I stepped out of my comfort zone picking a large variety of mushrooms. Congrats to Chris and Levena on the new show. I will be tuning in every Sunday night.

@Justin Yapp Chris is also a liar, a cheat, a "user" of others, akin to a carnival hawker, and disrespectful of local culture like private property rights and communal recreational mushroom producing sites.  I am not merely playing off of the numerous similar reports about Chris made by others for years -- I have proof, he knows I do, many have pointed out these types of things to him, and yet he continues like a greedy glory-hound.

In other words, Chris is a wet dream for rabid "reality" show producers for whom money is the only thing that matters and whose target audience is the large portion of the TV viewing public who, like professional wrestling fans, don't care what is real and what is fake because they like the adrenaline rush of it anyway.

And, no, that does not include me.  I came to this site to chase down a rumor.  It was false.  After registering with my full name, I purposefully chose the skimpiest option provided here for my username (the one that shows the initial for my last name) because I am not posting for self-aggrandizement but I could not let your praise for Chris that I saw here go without rounding it out.
